Browser Password Remover is a cross-browser password manager

Most web browsers ship with basic password management capabilities these days. They remember passwords for you if you want, and most provide you with options to add a master password to protect the passwords from unauthorized access by users or third-party programs.

While that is comfortable and used by many, some users prefer third-party tools as they allow them to synchronize the data between different Internet browsers or ship with other features that they require.

Browser Password Remover is a free portable program for the Windows operating system that can be best described as a cross-browser password manager.

What's meant by that is that it will read passwords from supported browsers to display them in its interface. As far as the list of supported Internet programs are concerned, it supports the who is who including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera as well as several forks of said browsers.

All you have to do after starting the program is to click on the show passwords button to have it scan for supported browsers and passwords saved in them.

All passwords are displayed with information such as the website the password was saved for, the username and password, and the browser it was found in.

Since everything is displayed in clear text, it can be used to quickly look up account information without having to open the browser.

Note: Setting a master password prevents the program from reading the correct information. While it may still be able to pull information from the browser, it comes in encrypted form and not clear text in this case. You do need to be aware that the program will only lists passwords of the current user and not other users on the system.

Browser Password Remover offers two options to handle passwords in its interface. You can remove select ones or all of them, or backup the list to a HTML, XML or TXT file.

Keep in mind that the file will contain a list of accounts and their passwords so that it should be kept secured on the PC should you want to create such a file.

Verdict

Support for browsers is quite good and while some popular ones are missing right now, with IE11 being the main one, it is generally fairly good.

The program's functionality is somewhat limited right now. It would be great for instance if you could add accounts to other browsers using it either manually or by using a synchronization feature.

Still, if you want to remove some or all passwords from multiple browsers, this is a great program for that job.

    Hi Martin,

    Excellent coverage on this. Curious, are you aware of any software that allows this type of cross browser functionality, but also allows writing passwords to them? I often need this with some clients converting from IE to Firefox or Chrome.. Thank you for your input.

    I see chrome marks it as a Malicious download althoug the site insists it isn't. Does anyone have a comment on that?
